Alter Bridge may have just released their fourth studio album, Fortress , but frontman Myles Kennedy and guitarist Mark Tremonti have revealed they already have plans for their side projects.

Kennedy says he’s begun the writing process for Slash ’s next solo album, which he hopes to start recording sometime in 2014.  “Slash is sending me his riffs and ideas, so I've been [sending parts to him] via the old phone voice memo,” he tells Billboard .  “We'll probably get together here later with the other guys, start chipping away at some things, and the goal is to record it next year.”

Meanwhile, Tremonti notes he’s looking forward to getting back into the studio with the members of his side project, Tremonti .  “I'll be getting with the guys and trying to find a window maybe in December or January just to write some material,” he explains.  “The next time we tour [as my solo band] Tremonti will probably be after we get some new material done, so it will probably be at least six months till we play some shows.”
